Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

I would rather every player on the team have to drive themselves to the game bc they missed the bus and win said game than watch whatever that was yesterday. There is a reason coaches that aren't such rules nuts are the most successful in the NCAA. If they're late to the bus, what makes you think d...

Re: At Northern Iowa 1/24

We should really by 14-6 and 6-2 in the MVC. Our problem is largely between the ears. We have one of the (probably) most talented teams in the conference. The immaturity, effort, and inconsistency is the key. How do you fix it? I don't know. I'm dealing with the same thing with a group of 13-14 yea...

Hey man, no offense, but do you honestly think they're not shooting free throws, or enough of them? ...

Re: Muller's Talent Strategy

Going into this year, it looks to me like Muller's key pillars of his talent strategy were: 1) Continue to recruit size/length (6-4+ guys) 2) Blend new kids from Illinois with out-of-state kids who checked the size/length box. This presumably would drive more local interest in the program and provi...

Down 42-27 at half. Frankly, could (should?) be worse.

Let’s start the rumors about him moving up on their fan board. Maybe it’ll work.

Where’s our great 3 point FG defense?
Williams isn’t playing. InSU didn’t score until MW left the game. ;)

Not seeing why posters think this is better than a .500 team?
I think they could be on any given nite. They can also be a Thursday nite team on any given nite. Really depends on shots falling and whether everybody shows up to play.

Hein is getting toasted
His +/- is -10, 0-1 from the field and 2 turnovers. Not to mention we put him on Scott which he has zero chance of staying in front of.
+10 for trying hard. Another choose to lose giveaway.
Honestly. Do you really believe Muller ever chooses to lose?
